The Article

It was about a man named Zac Vawter and how he participated in the "Sky Rise Chicago" in December. What was special about Zac was that he was wearing a newly made prosthetic leg that he could move the ankle of his leg even though his real body only went to his knees. They do it by having electrical pulses control the movement of the motor in his leg! He also completed the "Sky Rise Chicago".
